Hi Rob,

I'm planning to change the whole PECI node like below:

peci: peci@1e78b000 {
compatible = "simple-bus";
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <1>;
ranges = <0x0 0x1e78b000 0x60>;

peci0: peci-bus@0 {
compatible = "aspeed,ast2500-peci";
reg = <0x0 0x60>;
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;
interrupts = <15>;
clocks = <&syscon ASPEED_CLK_GATE_REFCLK>;
resets = <&syscon ASPEED_RESET_PECI>;
clock-frequency = <24000000>;
msg-timing = <1>;
addr-timing = <1>;
rd-sampling-point = <8>;
cmd-timeout-ms = <1000>;
status = "disabled";

peci-client@30 {
compatible = "simple-mfd", "syscon";
reg = <0x30>;

cputemp: cputemp {
compatible = "intel,peci-cputemp";
};

dimmtemp: dimmtemp {
compatible = "intel,peci-dimmtemp";
};
};

peci-client@31 {
compatible = "simple-mfd", "syscon";
reg = <0x31>;

cputemp: cputemp {
compatible = "intel,peci-cputemp";
};

dimmtemp: dimmtemp {
compatible = "intel,peci-dimmtemp";
};
};
};
};

Can you please check whether it is acceptable or not?

Thanks,

-Jae
